What is the extent of the relationship of the AK Party with SADAT founder Adnan Tanrıverdi which has been dismissed from the army and alleged to be counter-guerrilla on the grounds that he has engaged in reactionary activities?


The retired General Mr. Adnan Tanrıverdi welcomes such questions like this with the apprehension.

Mr. Adnan Tanrıverdi has been retired because of the lack of staff situation in the Turkish Armed Forces after he completed the waiting period of his brigadier general rank. He has not been dismissed from the army citing the reactionary activity.

Retired Brigadier General Mr. Adnan Tanrıverdi is not a counter-guerrilla. He is a person of Turkish Armed Forces who was at the forefront services for 32 years proudly in very different but all elite positions with a successful missionary records and also being who was promoted a year earlier without finishing the waiting period of the captain rank.

Mr. Adnan Tanrıverdi is a person who, since his retirement, has received offers from many political parties other than AK Party to enter their political parties and even move in to the Turkish Grand National Assembly (TBMM). He does not think of entering politics and does not have such a proposal from the AK Party, and has no physical connection with anybody with any political party. He entered this issue because he saw it as the best service area in accordance with his belief and knowledge and also he felt the lack of this service in our country.
